NYC Residents Accused In Massachusetts Car Insurance Fraud Scheme
Authorities in western Massachusetts say they broke up a large-scale automobile insurance fraud ring. It is alleged that people from New York City were insuring their cars in either Northampton, Easthampton or Greenfield where they paid substantially lower premiums. This went on for six years. WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with the chief prosecutor in the case, Steve Gagne, of the Northwestern District Attorney’s office.
